A TREE-LINED DRIVEWAY greets you as you travel up to Adelaide, a six-bed, four-bath home with a stunning sunroom and an extra wing for guests. 

This modern red brick bungalow with dormer windows and double garage is nestled to the northeast of a large site designed to maximise the garden space and a sunny southwest orientation.

The main living room has two sets of French doors that open to the garden. On the opposite side, the space opens to the adjacent dining room, which in turn has double doors to the large sunroom.

The sunroom, with its pitched double-glazed roof and two walls of windows, enjoys a south westerly orientation – so it really lives up to its name.

The Christoff-designed kitchen has a breakfast room area to one end, a window seat at the other, and a central island unit with a polished granite countertop in the middle. It includes a Rangemaster six-plate gas cooker, a prep sink and an Electrolux freezer. A cosy TV / family room is located off the kitchen and provides a relaxing atmosphere with an open fireplace.

There is access from the hall to a separate wing of the home, which sits comfortably as an integral part of the main house, or could equally be configured to create a self-contained unit.

The accommodation here provides for three additional bedrooms, a bathroom and separate shower room and kitchenette, as well as access here to the garage. Stairs provide access to a large space above the garage which could be well suited for a variety of uses,  including a cinema space or games space.

The site and gardens are undoubtedly an appealing feature of this home. There is a large open green lawn space providing a natural playground for children in addition to a kitchen garden to the back, complete with green house and to the side a mini-orchard with two rows of fruit trees. Mature walnut and eucalyptus trees give shelter and privacy to the property.

A pergola offers cover on the brightest of days, and the patio provides the perfect spot for dining al fresco.
